In store the G10 picture was noticeably better than the S1 of the same size, so I'm asking you guys, what do you think I should do? Will the 65" S1 be almost identical in picture quality to the G10, but just larger? Any differences?
Instead of making two threads you could have easily PM'ed or asked one of the mods to modify the thread title.
If you don't use THX, Viera Cast, and won't miss the extra color temps and Audio Out go for it. They are not identical, they are pretty similar in terms of picture quality but the edge goes to the G10. Also, the G10 is said to have better black levels than that of the S1.
The S1 is said to have rather inaccurate colors right out of the box, the greens and reds primarily. However, you can probably eliminate this if you wait for D-Nice to post his reference settings for the S1 or use Sadmakers service menu offsets.
I would go for the 65" though, I wouldn't pass up the bigger screen but i would definitely have it professionally calibrated.
It's up to you, you need to ask yourself 'Am i willing to sacrifice the slightly better picture quality and black levels of the G10 for a bigger screen?'.
